U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul, a Republican representing the 10th district of Texas, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 11 for his new office at 1526 Katy Gap Road, Ste. 803, Katy. The office was relocated from its previous location in the Katy Commerce Center at 1773 Westborough Drive, Katy. The new space is larger and will allow more of the congressman’s staff members to work out of Katy, Communications Director Rachel Walker said. Additionally, a larger space will allow McCaul to have a larger presence in the Katy area, she said. McCaul has four other office locations—one each in Tomball, Brenham, Austin and Washington, D.C. 281-505-6130. www.mccaul.house.gov
